A camera captured an incredibly powerful moment of prayer in Charleston, South Carolina, following a reported mass shooting at a black church Wednesday night.
“We need You now! Give us strength,” a man is heard saying while leading a group in prayer. “Fill us with your Holy Ghost, because, God, that’s what it’s going to take to keep this community together.”
“Bring us together, black, white, red, yellow, Christian, Muslim — it don’t make a difference, God!” the man continued.
